I’ve just been reminded what a tremendously useful book this is (I was describing someone as a ‘let-down’ and needed to know whether the hyphen was correct. It is.). Writers, if you don’t already own a copy, I’d give serious thought to putting that right.
I’m about three quarters through type-setting the stories and poems for my writing group’s collection (I finished proofing and editing them yesterday). Slow work, it is. I’ll be happy when it’s all done and I can get back to writing (what I’m paid for!) – not that I’m not enjoying it. There are stories that need writing and a little novel that needs fixing and finishing. More hours in the day, anyone?
